About the Book

Author Lissi Seneway has devoted her career to the study of the human condition. She seeks to tap into every emotion of her readers. Lissi believes that we have to feel to remember we are alive and that acknowledging our dark side can help us find life in the light.

Moonbeams and Melted Spoons presents a collection of raw, gritty poems that shed light on struggles that are often hidden and battlefields of wars often unseen; they invite you to contemplate and conceptualize the emotional carnage of shattered lives. These verses come from unique perspectives; the protagonists include veterans, survivors of sexual assault and child abuse, alcoholics, drug addicts, and people struggling with mental health disorders. The poems do not necessarily have proverbial happy endings, but in real life, many people with these types of experiences do find peace.

Giving voices to those who might not have found their own yet, this collection of poetry explores the battles faced by those dealing with addiction, mental illness, and trauma.
